Chan, Julia (University Personnel) is Stepping Beyond

“Julia Chan has been wonderful to work with on the CHRS Recruiting (Pageup) project. Julia worked really hard and went above and beyond to ensure the success of the Pageup project. Throughout this project, Julia was very helpful and provided me the information I needed to complete my tasks specially as it related to the Peoplesoft and PageUp integration (inbound and outbound). Julia is very prompt in answering any questions you have for her and if she does not have the information, she will get that information for me. Julia is also very nice and pleasant to work with.” –Harish Chander

Chen, Lisa (University Personnel) is Stepping Beyond

“Lisa Chen has been wonderful to work with on the CHRS Recruiting (PageUp) project. Lisa worked really hard and went above and beyond to ensure the success of the PageUp project. In the course of this project, the team members needed information and help on many different topics and she was able to get team members the information and resources they needed to complete their tasks. Throughout this project, she will get back to me even when it is outside the normal working hours. Lisa is also very nice and pleasant to work with.” –Harish Chander

Medders, Carrie (University Personnel) is Stepping Beyond

“Carrie did a wonderful job in leading the CHRS Recruiting (PageUp) project !!!! Without her thoughtful planning and leadership, an undertaking like this would NOT have been this smooth. Carrie coordinated with different stakeholders within SJSU and CO and she was available to the team whenever the team members needed her thoughts, input and feedback. It didn’t matter whether it was early in the morning or late in the evening or the weekend. Carrie answered every question the team had for her and if she didn’t have the answer then either she got the answer for us and pointed us in the right direction. This is one of the best managed projects that I have had the opportunity to work on and all the credit goes to Ms. Medders’ project management skills. The attention to detail she brought to this project was amazing.  Congratulations on a job well done.” –Harish Chander

Pyrch, Michael (University Personnel) is Stepping Beyond

“Due to the Covid-19 situation, several new leaves were implemented each with their own unique forms which needed to be converted to a user friendly DocuSign link to put on the UP website. Not only did Mike take care of these requests in a timely manner during what was already a very busy time for him, he also made several suggestions and improvements to the forms making them easier for the employees to complete which in turn made the entire process much more efficient for myself. Mike is a huge asset to UP and in my experience he always goes above and beyond while maintaining a positive and helpful attitude. I honestly could not have gotten through this challenging time without his help.” –Josh Etherington

Chander, Harish (Enterprise Systems) is Stepping Beyond

“Harish Chander, Enterprise Systems Analyst and Programmer for Information Technology, went above and beyond the call of duty in arranging for access to a web-based software application for clinical research (Research Electronic Data Capture [REDCap]). Harish appreciated the importance of negotiating a license to support the research of one incoming faculty member in the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) as well as the long-term potential for supporting the research enterprise at SJSU. The process of creating an institutional agreement for access to the free version of the software required significant research, problem-solving, and facilitated communication between different stakeholders. Harish was willing to step outside the typical duties of a PeopleSoft programmer and tackle this challenge with tenacity and enthusiasm. All of us in the CHHS Dean’s office are grateful for Harish!” –Laurie Drabble
